Book Supports - for exhibiting books
These are the book supports I made to cradle the books so they can be displayed open without putting much stress on the bindings. These are soft enough to bend - yet firm enough to be supportive. Anything much higher would let the books slide off. I found the dog toys at the Dollar Store and covered them. For some, I stenciled the words Book Art on strips of the fabric, for others I just freehand printed the word Altered on them in silver glitter. I left the handles exposed on those that came with them. If you have other ways of displaying your books, I'd like to hear about them. Please post a comment.
